Bringing our 4 yr old to disney in October and can't decide whether or not I want to bring my 20 month old son too. He's such a handful and I do not want to be stressed out the entire time. Am I a horrible mom if I leave him home with family? HELP!!

It sounds like you are really stressing over this decision. I honestly do not see a problem with you leaving the baby at home while you provide a wonderful vacation for your 4 year old. Just think of it as a nice bonding trip with your child to let them know that he or she is special too. I'm sure in the last 20 months the older one has probably felt like he/she has been a little neglected. All older siblings feel like that at first.. I speak from experience. HA HA! Just make sure to plan another trip in the future where your baby can go as well. As long as you have someone to take care of the baby, then go have a ball at Walt Disney World!
